Easy Banana Oat Pancakes

Commitment is freaking hard. Recently on Instagram I publicly acknowledged that I have a problem with “being healthy”. The thing is everyone knows that a bar (or bars) of chocolate, binge drinking, not moving your ass and so on, are all accessories of quite literally digging a deep hole for yourself. My 30+ year old…

Pantry Cafe

They had me at ‘red velvet latte’ Fridays are probably my most favourite day of the week. We’ve kind of set a ritual of being early birds and catching a good breakfast/brunch (accomplishing life goals of testing and tasting). Most times, we end up selecting a restaurant or cafe from the Entertainer app, which has some really awesome offers that makes eating out even more fun (read: saving money has its perks).

Plant Shopping – The Dubai Edit

Plant yourself where you will bloom… If you’re a part of the Jungalow movement, then this post is for you my green-fingered friend. When we were setting up our little-but-cute studio, I was VERY adamant (maybe bordering annoying) that we would be parents to a few green babies. I said a few, but I really…

What’s Pho Dinner?

“The secret ingredient is nothing” – Mr. Ping, Kung Fu Panda I find it funny when people ask me “can you cook?”. If you’re asking because you want to mentally check it off the my skill set list you’ll share with your mum, then bro, I’m already off the shaadi-tayar list. And FYI my mother-in-law…

Hello! My name is …

Hi Guys! I’m so happy you stumbled here. This is me (wearing an exceptionally cheerful yellow dress and smiling at nobody in the corner of the room). My name is Namrata (or call me Nami) and I recently moved to Dubai, the land of all things golden! A month into my move here I found…
